ALOHA! and Mele Kalikimaka! Dec. 27th, 2010

Boy well Christmas has come and gone and we are moving onto another phase of life! But this was the best Christmas that I have ever had man! It was such an amazing day and I really found out the true meaning of Christmas. It was good to talk to the fam and my boy BK! Sounds like all is well back in Utah, things out here are solid it was just weird waking up on Christmas to Sunny 75 degree weather. We are working it out here, our mission has hit 900 baptisms for the year of 2010 and we are still going along so we should be in the mid 900's by the end of this year. What a blessing to see these worthy converts enter into the covenant!

So for us here in Hau'ula we have been having a lot of good stuff happening, the Lord has been looking out for Elder T and G! We had a lesson with a guy named John on Tuesday and committed him to be baptized on New Years Eve! Its going to be sick, he has been taught for like 8 years and so we came across him and have only been teaching him for 3 weeks. I guess now is the time for him, we are very stoked to see him enter into the waters of baptism!

Not to much else here in Hawaii! This work is solid, I am truly blessed to be serving the Lord for 2 years. I came across a quote on Christmas day that really hit me, I believe it was Elder Nelson but not sure, and this quote isn't word for word but you get the idea: "the best thing that we can give to our Savior at this Christmas time, or at any time for that matter, it to keep ourselves unspotted from the World. If we do that he gives of the promise of everlasting life, whenever that time may come." May all of you have a Happy New Year, Love you guys!
